GAME Convening

ABOUT THE EVENT

The convening is being hosted by The Global Alliance for Mass Entrepreneurship (GAME) in partnership with Facebook. GAME was launched a year ago with the mission to galvanize the ecosystem for youth-led mass entrepreneurship at the local level, helping create 10 million entrepreneurs, 50% women, who create 50 million jobs by 2030. As we build the Alliance, the convening is not just a show of strength and a networking opportunity but a platform to ideate and co-create solutions to move the needle for Mass Entrepreneurship. A key design principle for us: each attendee goes back with something tangible – an insight, an idea, a new partner, or a skill.
